Bored to tears today... had an itchy trigger finger. So I wasted some time doing this still life HDR Shootout.

Ive always said every HDR with good tone mapping will improve any single shot image. This one really pops. Even I would say this doesnt need the HDR treatment, but it really helps, even in this situation. Thanks for this one Sparky.

This image set is a good example where the use of HDR makes the job more challenging than non HDR is some respects. The ev0 image pretty well captures the dynamic range of the scene. Merging the bracketed images with HDR s/w causes some problems with the animal's shadow causing it to easily become unnaturally dark and/or with a strong halo that is difficult to attenuate. Processing the ev0 image is Adobe Camera RAW does a very good job but the result lacks local contrast / "pop".
Here is my Oloneo output:
